Beginning with the funeral of a renowned classical violinist in a sleepy rural hamlet in the Lake District, a former theoretical physicist tries to make sense of his brother's suicide. Across the country, a university student, enjoying the unexpected attentions of an enigmatic seductress, is disturbed when his best friend falls to his death from the thirteenth floor of a neighbouring campus tower block.
As each tries to unravel the mystery behind the apparent suicides, they are drawn into an obsessive search for a computer-generated fractal video sequence, with startling effects on human consciousness, and which might just pave the way for discovery of the ultimate Theory of Everything.
However, they are not the only ones to have seen the potential of this mind-altering video, and soon find themselves in a desperate race against time with gangsters from the shadowy worlds of sex, drugs, cyber-crime, and massively multi-player on-line gaming.

Behind The Tapestry is the compelling true story told from behind convent walls, of one woman’s struggles to “make peace” with a mysterious chronic illness and her unfulfilled dream of being a Catholic nun.
Maryanne was a 29-year-old graphic designer working towards a lifelong desire to someday move to Hollywood and become an Academy Award winning art director. But an unexpected invitation to a Catholic prayer meeting would forever change Maryanne’s life showing her desires she didn’t know she possessed.
After being abruptly fired from her job and spending a lot of time in prayer, Maryanne embarked on a journey to discover God’s will for her life. This quest eventually led her to the Catholic Convent and the realization that all she’s ever really wanted was to devote herself to Jesus.
Entering Religious Life was all that Maryanne thought about for more than a year but there was a problem. She found herself plagued by a mysterious condition that caused widespread, chronic pain. However, in spite of this pain, Maryanne joined a group of Franciscan Sisters in 1999.
Her life in the Convent was filled with many questions, struggles, challenges and a whole lot of physical pain. Then when already strained relationships with her superiors became even more fractured with the lines of communication practically severed, Sister Maryanne was forced to make a heart-wrenching decision. One that would not only impact her life but the lives of those around her. Should she remain in the Convent and go on to take final vows or leave her Religious Life behind and take care of herself instead?
At fifty, entrepreneur and seasoned workaholic Batoul Ajlouni reached the very height of her career, her middle age, and the lowest point of her life.
The endless passion and zeal she once had for work and life have all but disappeared. Confused and anxious about her never-before situation, she is faced with a life-changing decision to make: Does she listen to the business-executive in her head, tough it all out and continue with the successful career she had spent half her life building? Or does she follow the free-spirit inside her heart, sacrifice everything she has ever worked for, and leap into a place of new hopes and dreams she knew nothing about?
In her timely memoir, Batoul Ajlouni shares her personal and professional venture of self-transformation at the most challenging of times, while re-evaluating priorities, seeking balance, searching for answers to questions and dilemmas we all face at one point or another during our professional journeys.
At sixteen, I found myself talking to my biological father for the first time.
Surreal is the only way I can describe it. He asked me to meet him at a nearby Denny’s. I didn’t know what to say except, “Sure, I’ll be there in thirty minutes.” I went to my room, picked up my purse, told my mom I was going to Denny’s, and drove to meet my father.
I had never seen a picture of him. I had no idea who I was meeting. I was a bit dazed, not knowing what to think or how to feel. I parked my car, got out, and hung around on the sidewalk outside Denny’s waiting for some man to come introduce himself to me. Instead, a woman I didn’t know walked up and asked, “Are you Julie?” She told me my dad was waiting
The effects of growing up with a physically or emotionally absent father extend beyond the social ills addressed in many statistics. Throughout more than thirty years of teaching and ministering, I have often encountered people who don’t feel loved or even lovable because their father didn’t love them. They feel invisible and resist close, intimate relationships because they view them as only temporary, ending with much pain. They fear continuing a dysfunctional cycle because they are confident they are just like their parents.
Through this book you will learn and feel secure that even though your earthly father was absent or has been absent, you can rest confidently on the love of God and recognize how He has actively fathered you.

WINNER OF TWO INDEPENDENT PUBLISHING AWARDS!
Hank Phillips makes his living defending the right to bear arms. Privately, he doesn’t ever want to touch a gun again.
Hank is an ex-Marine whose heroism in war earned him the Medal of Honor and a high-profile job with Armed and Ready, America’s most powerful gun rights organization. He has a devoted wife and son, millions of admirers and a bright future. But what Hank values most is his relationship with God. He believes his war record has poisoned it, and he prays that God will let him atone.
One night, a confrontation with police officer LaRonda Cage brings disaster upon Hank, his family, his employer and LaRonda, an exemplary cop burdened with responsibility for her disabled father.
The consequences of this incident also sweep over David Tischner, an influential businessman whose four-year-old grandson disappears from his preschool playground. The only clue to Andy’s recovery is a mysterious ransom note left at the scene. David’s desperate efforts to rescue the boy bring him into conflict with Vern Saginaw, David’s best friend and the CEO of Armed and Ready. Events snowball until they threaten to engulf the Second Amendment itself.
Weapons of Remorse looks behind the headlines to explore the personal consequences of America’s gun violence dilemma.
Terrorism rising in Europe and the Middle East...global economies in disarray...tiny Israel threatened by enemies on all sides. Is this old world finally about to die?
In Voices, this question festers just below the conscious level all over the world, especially in light of an event thirteen months earlier when millions of people simply vanished from the earth.
Most of those remaining comfort themselves by playing along with the more or less official explanation—that UFO’s came by and beamed certain people aboard for reasons unknown. But deep inside they realize that explanation is nothing but a convenient fantasy and that in reality an event of Biblical proportions has occurred.
Daniel Goldman is among those who try to ignore the Disappearance. Consistent with his life-long commitment to rigid self-determination, he has pushed the matter out of mind and become even more fanatically focused on his work as an international investor.
But on a Monday morning in late September events outside his control begin to chip away at his comfortable ignorance. Everywhere he goes he finds himself hotly pursued and people wanting things from him he’d never contemplated. As he travels the globe negotiating the largest oil deal on the planet—and as an ancient empire gradually re-awakens—he meets and falls in love with a beautiful Israeli woman. She, together with her family and their rabbi, help Daniel discover he has never really been the “captain of his soul.” Instead, all his life a variety of “voices” have guided him to a single decision with eternal consequences. The Biblical Apocalypse is upon them and, one way or another, Daniel is destined to play an important role in prophesied events.
This novel, the first of a series about the end of this age, shows the world is not coming to an end—only this current evil age is. It also treats the Bible as the inerrant Word of God and presents a plausible picture of the end times according to a literal reading of its prophetic revelation.

It covers her experiences as a sixteen-year-old girl at the Isle of Wight Music Festival in 1970, the same year that she follows a guru. It describes her tumultuous years as an art student in Coventry, where vegetarian Mug finds herself living next door to an abattoir and railway shunting yard with David, a fellow art student. Dramatic events follow on from the evening they meet at a student party, when Mug attempts to save David from attempting a very public drunken suicide attempt.

Once you accept, the miracle happens.
Who doesn’t want to achieve a prosperous, wealthy, peaceful, and evergreen life? Actions follow the path that diverts us from reaching the goal. If the right person takes the right action at the right time, the goal is achievable.
Success, money, fame and happiness are values. You use the money to validate wealth or service. It would be best to recognize that money is the value that is a return to your action. It is the transformed form of the energy you apply in your action.
"To perceive this super consciousness, you must have an entrance to the zero frequency state."
This book is a short story of a fantastic person with unique, extraordinary knowledge of human life.
He says, "As you know, we may not notice something with our binocular vision; our peripheral vision does that. In the same manner, our conscious mind may ignore an incident; our subconscious mind sees that. One step further, you can say nothing is unseen by our unconscious mind. As we increase the area of our peripheral vision through exercise, we can gain the skill to recall memories from our unconscious mind."
We often meet people with extraordinary qualities in our day-to-day life. Some of them amaze us with their exceptional knowledge. Even a simple fact may explore a whole alternative universe in front of us with its unique explanation. Mr Anand, with his vast knowledge of science, religion, psychology, and history, is a person in this domain. A wonderful personality I have ever met. Joy Malhotra, one of my friends, introduced me to this amazing person. We used to meet him in the evening to listen to him.
On such an evening, Joy raised an unusual topic about his dream. Naturally, we ignore this type of incident and forget it. But the explanation Mr Anand gave forced me to brood over the matter. This book is a narration of Mr Anand’s description. There is an urge in this story to rethink what we already may know. I hope readers will enjoy the story.
Mr Anand says, "We make several new decisions and take further actions in our day-to-day lives. The day passes by, and we forget it. We can not remember the process behind it because we did not repeat the process. Considering those recent actions as newly learned skills, we can look into how we took action. Once we repeat the operation numerous times in our minds, we learn it. It becomes our experience."
"If we could remember every action we had taken, our lives would have been more productive and straightforward. If we could find out the fear that stopped us, achieving the desired goal would have been just a matter of time."
Thus, the book is written with some unique ideas by Mr Anand. I hope you will like it.
These are linked stories, in the spirit of Ray Bradbury's Dandelion Wine. They are about a sixteen-year old girl, Kedzie Greer, who was raised in a utopian community and leaves home to make her way in a dystopian society. The year is 2199; the place, the Reunited States.
In these stories, technology coexists with a haunted world. There are witches and robots, ghosts and e-beasts, a mystical lake and a human warehouse.
If you want to get into the main story at once, begin with “Leaving Home.” It is about Kedzie's decision to seek a life outside the town gates.
If you want to begin with background on the town, start with “The Town With Four Names.” It has had a long strange trip from its beginning in the late nineteenth century, when it resembled the Chautauqua Institution, to 2199.
Men don't bring you happiness - you do. And being single is when it happens - Learn how!
Society, and your mother, is always busy telling you that you need to find a good man, “Why can’t you find a good man like Julie did? She got a great guy. You’re not getting any younger you know!”
The truth is that you don’t need to find a good man.
Needing to find a guy puts you in a desperate frame of mind.
Being desperate puts you in the wrong mindset for finding a great guy. If and when you do meet a guy, you will cling to him like saran wrap on a leftover pan of lasagna.
You’ll change who you are so you think you’re his perfect woman.
When you’re desperate, you drop everything in your life to be available to him when he beckons. This tells him you’re too available and he loses interest. There’s no chase…
You’ll share every detail of your life with him, before the end of the first date, or maybe even before you have a first date. This takes all of the mystery away and leaves him nothing to uncover on his own.
Instead, Build Yourself and He Will Come!
Wanting to find a great guy puts you in the right frame of mind – a confident mindset where you are choosing a great man from the large pool of men.
When you choose, you look for a man who complements your assets, has values that line up with yours and proves himself to be worthy of you.
You look for a guy who doesn’t just say the right things, he does the right things. He respects your boundaries and he treats you with respect.
When you want, rather than need a man, your rose-colored glasses fall off and you see the jerks for who they are and you dump them, if you give them the time of day to begin with.
Riding Solo is about shifting your mindset from one of needing a man to wanting a man, but not until you’re ready. This book helps you learn how important it is to embrace being single in preparation for finding that awesome guy!

Gary Troia is a writer, he has also been a bricklayer, a teacher, a philosophy student and a sufferer of several disorders, including: manic depression, alcoholism, fear of flying and a dislike of most people.
After Gary announces that he will no longer fly, his wife, Poppo books a coach holiday to Lake Como. One week later, with the newly acquired kittens dropped off at the cattery, Gary and Poppo embark on a twenty-four hour coach journey to Italy.
Gary always believed the restless, relentless, impossible-to-satisfy voice in his head was one of his greatest assets. It spurred him on. For a while, his strategy worked. But soon the energy of raw emotion would dissipate, and he would be back where he started. What happened next was completely unforeseen. Through a bizarre series of events - involving gangsters, the ICF, deportation from the States, Christian cults and the AA - Gary stumbled upon something that helped him tame the voice in his head: inspirational books. He spent years reading them before having a quiet revolution. Gary’s life was not transformed into a thing of beauty, but he did gain a passion for daily reflection and meditation. While the book itself is a narrative account of a journey to Lake Como, The coach to Como is ultimately the story of survival, recovery and evolution. The book is well crafted, with various threads being skilfully interwoven to give a colourful but incredibly honest account of the journey Gary has undertaken since he came to terms with his ego, his internal struggles with life, loneliness, rebelliousness and self-destructive behaviour.
The year is 2199; the place, the Reunited States.
Kedzie Greer is pretty, smart, accomplished, and loved. She grew up in paradise: a small lakeside community with utopian ideals. But on turning sixteen — the age of legal adulthood in 2199 — Kedzie decides she has had enough of paradise.
Story 1, “The Town With Four Names,” is about Kedzie's idyllic hometown, which has survived against all odds for more than three hundred years. Cassie Stillwater, a 90-year-old descendent of the original founder, writes down the town’s history, a history that turns personal.
Story 2, “Leaving Home,” is about Kedzie’s decision to seek a life outside the town gates. She finds a job that horrifies her parents, who fear that they raised her too well and protected her too much.
Story 1 will remind you of summer. Story 2 will remind you of what it feels like to begin work on your life.
The stories aren’t Young Adult in spite of the age of the heroine and in spite of the fact that they are more or less G-rated. They aren’t exactly science fiction either.

Six weeks into a blissful honeymoon, life turns into a nightmare when Susan’s 9-year-old daughter is taken away and her husband is falsely accused of child sexual abuse. As her own and other families throughout the country are crushed under its wheels, Susan musters the strength and the will to battle a behemoth system that has become the very thing it was created to eradicate.
Wheels of Injustice is the true story of one woman’s fight against a powerful system that’s run amok, grinding families into dust, obliterating Amendment protections, and taking revenge against anyone who attempts to reform it.
It’s the 1980s—a decade of unfounded abuse accusations, hysterical claims of orgies at daycare centers, families controlled by courts, and an out-of-control child protection system.
A tribute to God's faithfulness and a message of hope to others who have struggled to overcome adversity, fight governmental intrusion and overreach, and turn an upended life the right way around again.
“We are not to simply bandage the wounds of victims beneath the wheels of injustice, we are to drive a spoke into the wheel itself.”
― Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Treacherous secrets – keep them or share them? A difficult decision but honesty is the best policy. Isn't it?
What if your secrets are so dangerous they could destroy the one you love?

Leonie is terrified of the consequences of sharing any of her past with anyone. But not even Leonie knows the secrets that her very existence contains.
Gabriel is starting to discover the secrets inherent in Leonie and they could tear the world apart. Who does he turn to, and who should he share them with? If he tells the wrong person he could seal not just Leonie’s death warrant but those of millions more.
And no one has told Leonie the mystery of her necklace. When she discovers that, will she sacrifice everything and risk all that Gabriel has been working for?

People need to look at their government. I have written articles for over 20 years; from the first Bush to Obama. We have problems we need to face and quit sticking our head in the sand. It's okay to be a liberal or a conservative, but neither exists in our government today. Our politicians do everything but what they were elected to do: Represent the People. If you are open minded you will enjoy this. If you've only voted one party all of your life then don't download this book. Stop to look at what our politicians are doing today. If you are an open minded Christian you might enjoy this. And if you are you must admit God is probably not too happy. Atheists are offended. Everyone should be offended that they are offended. When talking about being Christian in the military becomes an act of "treason," then we have bigger problems. America has spent so much time protecting each individual’s rights that no one has any rights. Throughout history every great empire has collapsed; there have been no exceptions. To all the military living and dead who served the United States of America, with honor and sacrifice for freedom and their country, may the actions of Congress and our Presidents not make their dedication in to God and country in vain. WARNING! This is for mature audiences so if you’re a Democrat or Republican who always voted the same ticket, this is not for you, because it means you are incapable of thinking on your own, so I’d rather you not buy it. If you are a frustrated American upset with the current administrations then you may find these scribbles quit enjoyable. Should I Forget A simple reminder, since I might forget. These are scribbles of an Old Fart and you may find repetitions. This is due to “Oldheimers.” DISCLAIMER Any resemblance to political persons in office is purely intentional. FOR PETA’S SAKE! For your peace of mind let it be known that NO animals were injured during the making of these meandering scribbles. GIVE ME A BREAK! I’m not a racist, and I’m not a terrorist, I’m just trying to be funny and open your eyes to other solutions. If you have better ideas then you write a book. FINAL WARNING! Before you read this I must remind you that you have three choices. You can only pick one so be careful. You are a Democrat, a Republican or an American. If you picked one of the first two then don’t get this book and if you do then don’t complain. Americans tell the truth, the other two don’t. Offended yet? You will be; unless you’re an American. FOR OBAMA I’M AMERICA’S BIGGEST THREAT I’m a white, Christian, heterosexual, and I believe in traditional marriage. I am America’s Biggest Threat. Get Over It!
